Former Uttarakhand chief minister Vijay Bahuguna has sent a defamation notice to his deposed successor Harish Rawat for alleging that he was paid Rs 25 crore by the BJP to topple his government.

Sent through his lawyer Rajeshwar Singh, the notice seeks an apology from Rawat within three days failing which appropriate legal action will be initiated against him.

However, when asked at a press conference here whether he had received any defamation notice from Bahuguna, Rawat replied in the negative saying if at all he receives such a notice in future he will reply to it in the legally sanctioned way and not through the media.

“You have been constantly levelling false and baseless allegations of money deals between the BJP and my client alleging that Rs 25 crore have been paid into the accounts of my client by the BJP in your press conferences and public meetings,”┬áthe notice said.
